3D Digital Image Correlation (DIC) provides the ability to measure non-contact 3D coordinates, displacements, and strains of materials and structures. If you need rapid full-field measurements from material characterization to full component testing, you could learn how to deploy an optical system within minutes to measure thousands of contiguous strain gauges or displacement sensors. This technique is now recognized and certified (NIST, Boeing) as equivalent to standard mechanical testing tools. 3D DIC is used across industries for improving the quality and the accuracy of the data collected to best understand mechanical behaviors of components or validate FEA models of many automotive giants like Ford and General Motors as well as high tech electric car start-ups like Lucid Motors and Divergent 3D.

Seminar Objectives

Basic skills and knowledge:

  • Principles of photogrammetry,
  • DIC patterning,
  • Optimal setup and data acquisition,
  • GOM Parametric software philosophy,
  • General analysis workflow, and
  • Report creation.


  • DIC parameters optimization,
  • Powerful timeline adjustments,
  • Integration of external data set, and
  • Interface customization.


  • Interactive scripting and dialogs,
  • Realtime measurements, and
  • Point tracking with DIC.

Seminar Outline

Basics of Digital Image Correlation

  • The basics of the DIC technology and its applications,
  • Hands-on tutorial using GOM Correlate software for 2D DIC (Windows laptop recommended), and
  • Overview of analysis process.

Post processing

  • Hands-on ARAMIS system setup,
  • Sensitivity analysis,
  • Point tracking (displacement analysis, 6 DoF, CAD import) (Windows laptop required),
  • Surface correlation (displacement map, strain analysis), and
  • Reporting (Windows laptop required).


  • Parameters optimization,
  • Best practices and certification,
  • Introduction to live ARAMIS,
  • Introduction to high-speed DIC, and
  • Q&A.

Unique Features of the Course

Hands-on with 3D equipment and complimentary full licence for DIC software to create, analyze, and report 2D data sets.

Target Audience

Mechanical, biomechanics, civil and materials engineers.
